Without any outright hostility among leaders of the G-7 nations in their summit in Canada’s Quebec City, investors seemed content to go into the weekend with confidence in the prospects for the U.S. economy and its biggest businesses. Yet some individual companies had bad news that held their shares back from participating in the rally. Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR), PolarityTE (NASDAQ:COOL), and Evolus (NASDAQ:EOLS) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Tupperware Brands’ (NYSE:TUP) stock has tumbled more than 40% since last July on a consistent flow of negative news. Most recently, TUP revised its first-quarter earnings forecast down by 14% to $0.87-0.92 from a previous range of $1.01-1.06. Customer service, supply chain, and tax issues were the main reasons for the revision. With that being said, I see the stock as being significantly undervalued for the following reasons:

Free cash flow is expected to rebound to $170-180 million in 2018, an increase of approximately $30 million over 2017. Free cash flow should further rebound in future years as TUP completes its reengineering program. This yields 51% upside potential in a conservative discounted cash flow model. TUP is performing well in Emerging Markets, especially China and Brazil, which could push TUP to a growth trajectory in the coming years. The company currently has a dividend yield of 6.52%, which is supported by free cash flow. Based on TUP’s 2018 free cash flow projection, this should equal dividend coverage of approximately 80%. It has attractive fundamental valuations including a Forward P/E of 8.51x and a PEG of 0.73x. Tupperware Brands’ Operations

Driving TUP’s net loss for 2017 was a number of non-recurring expenses:

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now

Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL), while sporting one of the youngest fleets in the industry, is hugely over-levered with $8.9B in net debt. By the middle of 2017, net debt/EBITDA will hit 7x, above its maximum level of 6.5x. SDRL previously amended this so there is likely no room left. The firm has $3.17B of debt due in the next 12 months and only $1.25B of cash on hand. If sponsors don’t contribute $1-2B in capital, the equity will need to be restructured.

Seadrill also has over $4B in capex due through 2019 and this includes 14 newbuilds that are being delivered. None are contracted yet, which hurts Seadrill specifically as well as drags down future industry dayrates. Furthermore, while operators like Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO) have been investing in their fleet through this downturn, SDRL and Transocean (NYSE:RIG) have been cutting capex to the bone. That leaves them in weaker competitive position once the cycle finally turns.

Why does the short opportunity exist? Value investors are focusing too heavily on P/NAV and historical trough multiples as a crutch rather than the future earnings power of the company. Trailing multiples (five-year to 10-year) are distorted as they are based on peak dayrates, which have been in free fall and will continue to decline unless supply is rapidly taken off the market. At current prices (just north of $3), the stock is trading at a mid-double digit forward EBITDA multiple.

    Monday was generally a good day for the stock market, although major benchmarks showed a considerable amount of variation in how they performed. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 seemed to benefit the most from news that the U.S., Mexico, and Canada had resolved their trade differences and come to a trilateral agreement, but the Nasdaq Composite lagged, and small-cap stocks posted substantial declines. Also hurting the overall market were some disturbing developments regarding some key companies. Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN), Akorn (NASDAQ:AKRX), and Cal-Maine Foods (NASDAQ:CALM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

Given its valuation, Under Armour (NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA) is still a risky stock here, but the first quarter 2018 financial results were released earlier this week, which weren’t as bad as many thought, and the resulting price action gave the bulls some hope.

The reversal in the share price on the morning of the report was the first positive: the initial reaction to the Q1 ’18 earnings report was that the stock rose 2.6% pre-open, and then fell 6% during the conference call (trading down near $17), and then once the NYSE opened and general trading began, UAA rose steadily all day, finishing within $0.10 of its high and closing over $18.

It doesn’t seem like much, but technically-inclined investors will tell you that is far better action than the opposite on a company reporting a strong quarter.

However, let’s look at the numbers:
